Core Spreads Separates Knowledge Base from Spread Betting Platform

Core Spreads are attempting to lead the way with their no-fuss, streamlined spread betting platform – but they’re not neglecting traders who need to brush up on a few educational pointers before they start trading.

The Core Spreads ‘Knowledge Base’ section consists of frequently-asked questions, an overview of risk management tools, explanations on how to get the most out of the platform and a list of trading terminology. Best of all, it’s separate from the trading platform, hidden away in its own little section – so users aren’t doing battle with persistent distractions while they’re trying to educate themselves or trade.

Matthew Wright at Core Spreads says, “We pride ourselves on offering a noiseless interface for our users, with none of the ‘bells and whistles’ that many competitors offer. Feedback from traders shows that some find this distracting and would rather have a pared-back interface – but we didn’t want to neglect basic education altogether. We’ve put together a dedicated support section for clients who might need a little assistance as they get the hang of Core Spreads. It was important that we kept it away from the main trading platform, but it was equally vital that we added this section to our site – so users can find help if they need it.”

The ‘Knowledge Base’ section is fairly specific to Core Spreads, with plenty of information about how the trading platform should be used, how accounts are funded and how to get in touch with a member of the team if necessary. There’s also an extensive section dedicated to terminology; users can discover what the ‘notional’ of a trade is, and what to do with a guaranteed stop loss order, but they can do so away from the fast-paced trading platform, on a dedicated page.

Core Spreads has built its reputation on providing a slick, noiseless and streamlined trading platform for the traders who have honed their trading edge and want to put it into action. But everyone needs some clarification now and then, whether it’s about maximum stake size, or a more technical query about the platform.

Matthew adds, “Our regular users needn’t worry – the support section won’t spill over onto the trading platform, but it’s always there if they need it. Even expert traders need a little education now and then, but at Core Spreads, we understand that users don’t want it to interfere with their trades or distract them in any way.”
